👉👉This trip is FULL. A waiting list has been started👈👈 ⛵🎆⛵🎆⛵🎆⛵4th of JULY WEEKEND SAIL ⛵🎆⛵🎆⛵🎆⛵ Discover the rugged beauty, solitude and excitement of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Depart from the Bayfield, WI for a three day sail beginning Thurs July 4th thru Sun July 7th. Pre-board on Thurs evening, July 4th, after 4:00 PM. Dine in Bayfield and watch fireworks from the shore of Lake Superior. We will depart the marina Friday morning and anchor out two nights in the islands. Our weekend will consist of sailing, exploring islands, sailing, exploring lighthouses, sailing, exploring sea caves, sailing, taking a dip in Lake Superior (for those who dare), sailing, strolling the beach, star gazing, sailing, fellowshipping with other believers, sailing!! Please be aware that sailing does require some agility and mobility. When the boat in under way moving about can be challenging being it is at an angle. We will be getting in and out of a dinghy to get to shore. There are ladder steps to go down into the cabin. Spaces in the cabin are fairly small. The head (toilet room) has a door way that is a smaller passageway and can measure as small as 24” wide. The private bedrooms or berths will require some crawling or climbing into. I like to call it camping on a sailboat. The quarters a tight but, the experience is unmeasurable!! ONLY 4 AVAILABLE SPOTS Cost is $453 plus food, carpooling and a couple meals out. RSVPing DOES NOT reserve your spot. I need to receive a $250 deposit to reserve your spot, remaining is due June 1. ⏩⏩⏩Cancellations are only refunded if a replacement is found⏪⏪⏪ ☀️💦☀️💦☀️💦☀️💦Rain or Shine 💦☀️💦☀️💦☀️💦☀️ Private message me for further details Other details to follow once the boat is full I am promoting in another venue so available spots can change without notice.
